Tofu Your Children Will Eat

I'm not kidding with this one. My kids love this pudding. My stepchildren had never even heard of tofu when we met and they brag about it to their friends. When we go to the grocery store, they beg me to buy tofu. People give me strange looks.

Chocolate Tofu Pudding/Pie Filling

1 package tofu (14 ounces), drained and patted dry

1 cup sweetener**

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

Place all ingredients in food processor and blend. Top with fresh fruit or spoon into prebaked pie crust.

**I used 1/2 cup Agave nectar and 1/2 cup superfine sugar. Use what you have and what you like. You could use Splenda, regular sugar, REAL maple syrup, whatever. Just keep adding a bit at a time until it tastes sweet enough for you.

I'm assuming it's the silken type tofu? I've got to try this out. When my kids were little, they'd eat firm tofu cold from the package with a sprinkling of salt. Now they're not so easy to please.

You are right, silken is best. However, any kind of tofu will work. Softer tofu=softer pudding.
